Resolutions anyone?


Pat Davids here.


A year has vanished in what seems like the blink of an eye. Tomorrow it will be 2010. Wow!


Remember how long it took 2000 to roll around? Remember all the end of the world/computer crash hype that fizzled out? My family and I welcomed the new millennium with a chilled bottle of non-alcoholic wine. I kept the empty bottle as a souvinor for about three years then finally recycled it.


That's one thing on my new resolution list for 2010. Recycle more. I have other resolutions. My old stand by--lose weight. I've lost and found about 1000 lbs in my lifetime. Still, I keep at it. Someday those shed pounds may actually stay off but then what would I do for a resolution next year?


My resolutions are like old slippers. A little worn out but comfortable. I'll try to be a better person, try to write more books, try to save more money, try to gripe less at my spouse. As my nine-year-old granddaughter tells me, no one is perfect except God. She's right, but I don't aim to be perfect, only better.


Even if you don't make or keep a resolutions, it's good to review your life and see what needs work.
Do you make resolutions? Do you keep them? Are they worthwhile?

  1. I don't make resolutions. I just never got in the habit of doing it.

    Happy New Year to everyone.

  2. I have set my goals for 2010. There are 13 of them! This year, I am going to achieve my goals, because I am going to work on them every day. The goals are specific, doable and have deadlines ... just like my Weight Watcher leader instructed. LOL I really do want to lose weight this year FOR GOOD.

  3. Margaret,
    I have several friends who refuse to make resolution so I understand.

    Sandi,
    Excellent attitude. 13 goals are a lot. Best of luck with shedding those pounds. I'm with you there.

  4. I'm another one of those who do not make resolutions. It is just something I know won't make a difference so I don't do it.

  5. Ellen,
    That makes it even. Two who will and two who won't make a resolution. It's always fun to see how other people view traditions.
    Have a Merry and Stress Free New Year.
    Pat
